Default TWRP 2.6.1 won't mount file system

Has anyone experienced issues with TWRP being unable to mount the file system?

I can't seem to mount file system while in the recovery. Get the following:
E: Unable to mount 'external_sdcard'
Device: HTC One S (S-OFF)
ROM: TwistedKat 2.2
Recovery: TWRP v2.6.3.0
Kernel: Stock
Governor: Stock
Radio: 1.15.50.05.29_10.30.50.08L

TWRP can't deal with NTFS or exFAT. Is it fat32?

I'm not sure. Whatever the standard is for CROMi-X and Asus .14 bootloader?

What I meant was, that your external MicroSD may be formatted in NTFS or exFAT and then TWRP won't see it. It has to be FAT32. If you ever formatted that card on your PC, that may be the problem. If not, the card could be faulty??? IDK
I assume you went to 'Mount' in TWRP and the MicroSD is not checked?
Describe a little more what you are trying to do.

Nope - I don't have a MicroSD card. I was just trying to mount the data on the tablet. My initial post wasn't clear - I was try to mount the file system on the tablet and the only error generated was specific to mounting the sdcard (which I don't have).

I couldn't have titled the original post any worse.

What exactly did you do, what exactly did you expect to happen, and what exactly did happen?

I am trying to access files on the tablet while booted into recovery. I've used this option with my phone and was hoping to do it with the tablet.
